Xbox One X is Microsoft's new powerful game console

Microsoft has unveiled its new console the Xbox One X

Microsoft repeatedly mentioned that Xbox One X would be a premium console for a segment of consumers looking for 4K games.

As for the PS4 Pro, it comes with an AMD Polaris graphics with 4.2 teraflops of performance and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. This means that the Xbox One X has a roughly 40% power margin over the PlayStation 4 Pro. On paper, it's clear that the PS4 Pro is competing with the Xbox One S, rather than the Xbox One X. Throw in the UHD Blu-ray player, 4K streaming capabilities, HDR support, and Dolby Atmos, $499 is lower than anyone thought the console would be when it was announced. One of those looks awesome and the other is the new Assassin's Creed game.

Right now we only know two of the original Xbox games that will be added to the program this year: Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy. "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said.

Xbox One X Price Too Steep?

During an interview with Business Insider, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox division, gave a simple "no" when the media asked if sales of Xbox One X will generate profits for Microsoft. "The money-making part is in selling games", said the Xbox boss.

KitGuru Says: While I'm not a fan of the original Xbox controller, I can appreciate that it'll bring a lot of nostalgia for original Xbox users.

As for the design it seems that despite the powerful interior it is smallest and slimmer than the Xbox One and One S.

According to Spencer, Microsoft's mindset is that the hardware component of the video game console business is not that part that will make money for companies.
